HD Channel Launches: Halogen HD

June 22, 2010 by  

Yes, we don’t normally get very interested in a new HD channel launching, and we aren’t super sure about this one, but the fact that a sort of established channel aimed at 18-34 year olds is launching an HD feed is cause to perk up a bit, as it means previous dedicated HD channel failures aren’t discouraging anyone.

The company, which made the announcement today, did not say which providers would carry the new HD channel; odds are not many at first. Halogen’s SD channel is now available in 14 million homes, including Verizon homes, so its semi-known already, which can be a good thing.

Halogen’s lineup includes shows titled Healing With Animals, Keep It Green, Angry Planet (storm chasers) and Artland, all aimed at showing people how they can make a difference in their communities and the lives of others. It premiered last Fall.

The real news here: more content. Essential for any growing medium such as HD to thrive, and we’re hopeful this one will grow some wings in the months to come, which should encourage even HD content down the road.

  1. Derek–thanks for posting our announcement here. To answer your question, we are in contract negotiations with a soon-to-be-announced provider, but you’re right, we don’t currently have distribution on the HD feed. We anticipate that to come mid- end-of-summer.
